In sumo wrestling, two fat men try to push the other out by
punching and using nine special moves. In Super Sumo Wrestling,
there are more than just fat guys competing to become the coveted
"Yokozuna" (or the best sumo wrestler). You can also kick, bite,
headbutt, or whatever else you want.
Many different things can happen in the sumo ring. Every
time you slap the other sumo, you lose some stamina and gain some
points on your rage meter. When the rage meter fills all the way
up, you get a special move block. When you get four special move
blocks, you will begin flashing white. Hit the special move button
and choose from nine moves (each having its own unique effect). When
you or the other sumo becomes green and can't move, it means you are
in shock. This means he ran out of stamina and is recharging
(so hit him with all you got).
Your score can be affected by many things. Be sure to watch
the time. If time runs out you automatically lose. You may later
wonder, "Why would I set the time to 30 seconds instead of
unlimited?" Well, you'd do that because the lower you set a match's
time, the higher your score will be. Every time you hit the other
sumo, you get 10 points. Every time you use a special move, you get
a huge amount of points multiplied by the value of your tournament
(1-Tanuki, 2-Fox, 3-Panda). If your score is high enough at the end
of a tourn, you will be asked for your name for the high scores list.
One of the new features in Super Sumo Wrestling is the
experience point (EX) and level (LV) system. When your EX gets to
10, you gain a LV. After a match you will be asked to raise one
stat. You can gain EX by using a special move, hitting a sumo 25
times, winning a match (2 EX), and winning 5 matches in a row (2 EX).
